1840.025.05 Failure to Pay Initial Premium

Failure to pay the premium at initial approval or a level of care change from non-premium to premium will not impose a penalty. MHD notifies FSD through the Information Technology Services Division (ITSD) when a case is ineligible due to non-payment of a premium and the case or child(ren) must be closed. A household that is closed for failure to pay initial premium may reapply immediately with no waiting period.
